Ilaria is planning a 7/8 days Boggies trip to Italy next Spring.  Suggested dates 7th to 15th April 2020. This would be based in Tarquinia, in the province of Viterbo, Lazio on the coast just north of Rome.   You should have had an email in October about this.
View Images. There is lots to do in and around the region .Flying probably from Luton to Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport and hiring cars from for the trip to Tarquinia, and we will have them available during our stay.We would be planning to hire a couple of AirBnB's in Tarquinia. Not many houses in the town have en-suite bedrooms.  Couples can probably be accommodated in private rooms. Single occupancy negotiable. Cost for flights and accommodation and car hire for the 8 days should not exceed £350.  Food and Drink not included.


To get cheap flights and arrange accommodation we will need to book by 10th November 2020.
